1. U.S. Professionals still need some degree of office space.

Remote work for flexible teams requires a considerable shift in work culture. Without consistent colleague interaction, in-person team building, and spontaneous meetings, it can be difficult to sustain company culture. According to Indeed, a worldwide employment website for job listings, organizational culture has transformational power that leads…

March 2021 will mark one year since half of the workforce left their traditional office spaces to work from home full-time. As we weren’t able to prepare for the impact of the pandemic, many aspects of our lives were turned upside-down.

According to CNBC, 75% of remote workers prefer to work in an office setting. 50% of remote workers, however, hope that their employers will support a hybrid-work model with which remote workers have the flexibility to work from home, or a flexible office space closer to home, a few…

It’s now more important than ever to create a program that promotes wellness within your business. With the transition to remote work, companies are thinking creatively about shifting wellness programs entirely online.

Prevalent Office Space Trends

Today, large companies are opting to move their headquarters from major, high-density cities to smaller suburbs around the world. This transition provides multiple benefits to both employers and employees.
